The fifty-three entrants in the Intersport DeGrandi 21.1 km handicap enjoyed excellent weather as they set off in the longest race on the club’s calendar. A further 33 runners chose to compete in the consolation 5 km sealed handicap. It was first year runner, Mark Chalmers, who scored both first over the line and fastest time which is no easy task. Chalmers won by 150 metres from Katie Eisenhauser and Tracie Dekleva who started off the same mark and were only separated by 15 metres at the finish with Eisenhauser being the fastest female on the day.
